Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta TEe Lethbridge Herald VOL I. LETHBRiDGE, ALIA., SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1908. NO. 133. OPPOSITION AIMS AT DISSOLUTION REASON FOR THE POLICY PURSUED AT OTTAWA Conservatives Trying to Force the Government to go the Country Some Supply Was Allowed to be Voted Manitoba Government is Bossing the Conservative Party at the Dominion Capital Just Now Ottawa, May boasting that they would never allow a dollar of supply to go through until thy Do- minion elections bill, or at all events the first clause was withdrawn, thfc Opposition relented today, and con- sented to quite a liberal measure of supply being passed. It is true that the estimates put through today were exclusively confined to public in Manitoba, but the concession fol lowing so closely upon the boasts and threats, came as a surprise to the House, which anticipated a renewal of hostilities today. The government today gave the Opposition an oppor- tunity to show the c-untry their in tentions and demonstrate whether; they propo.se to merely criticise the work of the administration or to de- liberately block the busimss of the country. This was done by moving the House into comujittee of supply to vote the money necessary to car- ry on public At a caucus in the morning, the Liberals discussed situation and decided the government had made a fair offer at a compromise and had gone as far as it could to meet the wishes on the part of the Opposition and at the same time preserve its own dignity. The efforts to obtain supply in the afternoon, were not ab- solutely barren of results, votes for public buildings in Manitoba, were asked from the House and while the Opposition allowed some go through they showed the greatest re- itriction and kept the drag through- >ut the sitting. The items offf-red for consideration were peculiarly fitted to em harass their compaign They were Manitoba items and the Conservative members irom that province appreciated the !act that they would not please the electors of Brandon or Winnipeg if they refused to vote money to build i postofiice there on the ground that they want', d to retain the Ilob'in- iiogers electoral lists. Therefore, they allowed some of the votes to go MORE MEN GO ON STRIKE All The Textile Mills Of Montreal Will be Tied Up MRS. GUINESS DEAD PART OF HEAD FOUND government to end the deadlock by an appeal to the country they will reap a tactical advantage. Tlu? government's position is cl.arly defined. So fur as the. elections bill is concerned they are taking the view that the concession offend by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, is as far as it i> possible to go without sacrificing the principles which underlie the affair and necessary electoral reform. The premier 1ms made it absolutely clear that suggestions of a reasonable kind will receive every consideration but so far the only response made to that invitation has an imperative demand on the part of the Opposi- tion for the" withdrawal of the first Montreal.
